“This recipe is a combination of several White Bean Chicken Chili recipes with my own personal adaptations. The chili ends up looking like Green Chili with White Beans.”
2hrs 30mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté onion, garlic and peppers with olive oil.
  2. Poach boneless skinless chicken breast in chicken broth. Remove from broth, let cool and dice.
  3. Add chicken, chicken broth, beans, corn, onion, garlic & pepper mixture and seasonings to crock pot.
  4. Cook in crock pot on high for at least 2 hours.
  5. Serve garnished with a spoon of cumin cream (made by combining 1 teaspoon ground cumin with 1 cup low-fat or fat-free plain yogurt), a spoon of tomatilla salsa (best made from fresh tomatilla's, with jalapeno, red onion, cilantro and lime juice - but in a pinch I like to have a small can of Herdez Salsa Verde on hand), and a sprinkle of fresh chopped cilantro.
  6. For those who dare add any more Fat & Cholesterol, add a sprinkle of shredded cheese such as Monterey Jack or Cheddar - a little crumbled Queso Blanco, or Queso Fresco would be nice too.
  7. Pairs well with cornbread.
